Aaaa....Yankees are in the Playoffs.....helloooo

Recommended Posts

Im on board with sabermetrics? Lol, Where did you get that idea? Im sure you can use AI to show Dusty is a bad manager. Truth is hes taken his teams to the playoffs more often than not. Big markets and small markets, inherited and built. He has his faults but guys love to play for him. Maybe thats a metric now.

Maybe now they want Harvard snots as managers now and guys like he and Girardi arent the future. We'll see...

There are no small markets in sports..small markets don't get professional sports franchised...except the wnba.

 

Chicago, San Fran? Dc? Small markets? They're literally top 6 American markets

 

Chicago is three..San Francisco is 5 dc is 6 maybe even higher now..it's been a while since I worked in markets..I do know that dc and San Fran are one and two in most expensive places to live..not nyc

Cincinnati

not a small market.

 

Cincy is a top 30 market in country of thousands of markets.

 

Now you can argue relativity to baseball, but as I said, small markets do not get professional sports franchises.

 

Every baseball team can and should have payroll of 200 million. Cheap owners want to scream small market...then they should move their teams to some shitty town in Delaware

As far as the big market/small market. Its easier to get a free agent to L A then to Seattle

if you're talking same money, I agree. But all you have to do, like in every business is outbid the competition.

let's see if the Giants get Giancarlo Stanton then I'll be less cranky. Not saying they're a small market team- Their problem attracting sluggers is the ballpark is too big.

Balls are flying out if every park these days with the change in the balls so I don't think parks are going to make as big of a difference as it used to be

I think the Giants got last years shipment.

Fake Yankee Stadium and minoot made Park are still tiny.

Seriously, that 1 handed shot by Pugh? That was infield fly rule almost! And then how can you say the bullpen sucks when they cant get movement on a piece of glass- and when they do get their pitch the pop up leaves the yard.

I don't know man..Yankee relivers.. specifically Dave Robertson has been spinning that hook better than Adam Wainwright in his prime. So have many other relief pitchers.

 

Houston has a terrible bullpen, it's just a fact.

Tanaka...class act. Stays with yanks. Would have been the best free agent pitcher on the Al market.

 

Arrieta is a nl pitcher and darvish lost it. Mediocre now.. maybe he will get better, but he has regressed every year...and I'm taking his injury into consideration.

 

Tanaka was great in the second half and a beast in the playoffs.

My off-season wish list for the Yankees

 

They have to upgrade at back up catcher..Alex Avila is a free agent..grab him. Looks like yogi Berra compared to automatic out no power romine.

 

Left specialist for the awesome bullpen.

The guy on the royals is a free agent and is really good against lefties..I forgot his name..once highly touted starter. Mike something

 

Dh and sp could be filled in one guy

Otani.

 

On days he pitches, whoever the guy playing third base is will dh and utility infielder plays third...or dh Sanchez and keep your best lineup...or slot otani into the batting order..so many possibilities

Otani to be posted. I think the Yankees get him..they have Tanaka, a fellow countryman who will surely make his transition easier. I guess whatever team gets darvish will have the same advantage.

 

Otani fills three needs.. a starting pitcher, a dh and more youth.

 

Then sign sabathia on a one year deal for veteran leadership and a veteran corner infielder that can spell headley and bird.. assuming headley doesn't get traded.

 

Alex Avila would be high on my list too.

 

A back up catcher than can post a positive war almost all don't so it's hard to find, but it can be the difference between the division and the wild card.

 

Austin romine is bad at baseball. He should not be on a major league roster. Upgrading the back up catcher should be a priority.

Here's my trade idea..Yankees get Marcel ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton.

 

Yankees eat all if Giancarlos contact and trade Clint Frazier, chance Adams and Domingo Acevedo to the marlins

Imagine the outrage if jeter immediately traded his best player to the Yankees. Imagine all the hot takes!

Well, I'd go for ozuna either way..he is a healthier, unheralded version of Bryce Harper.

 

Could get him for pitching prospects and Clint fazier..then lock him up with a 6 year deal in the 100 mil range.

 

Bam!

They need pitching more than any team in the league...the Yankees have a wealth of high upside pitching prospects.. actually they have a wealth of ever prospect.

 

That's why you include Frazier..gives them high upside outfielder to replace ozuna under control until 2023.

 

A better comparison than Harper is a healthy, harder working cespedes
